The Friends of Gaza Centre in Oxford is preparing to set up an exhibition featuring the drawings of the children of Gaza under the title “Children under Fire.”
The exhibition, which will start at the end of next January and last for a month, will include drawings from the Gaza Community Mental Health Programme, showing the impact of the war waged by Israel on the Gaza Strip during December 2008 and January 2009.
The event will set out from Oxford, and it will be held in London on February 5 next year to mark the end of the Israeli incursion into Gaza via land, sea and air.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a concert, on the Mahatma Ghandi theatre, featuring the Arab Oud player Ahmed Mukhtar, who will donate his performance to the project of the Friends of Gaza Centre in Oxford. The exhibition will also be taken to other cities in Britain.
The project aims at fundraising, in addition to raising the British public’s awareness of the suffering of the Palestinians, especially the children, as a result of the Israeli Occupation, siege and last year’s massacre of the Palestinians, during the Israeli onslaught on Gaza, which will be commemorated by the project.
